Oh no - the signal loss is infectious - keep your other cell phones away from the iPhone 4 else you will be infected as well!
The *real* reason for the con call is to place all the blame on AT&T and to announce that the iPhone will be available on Verizon effective today with expected sales of 5 million Verizon iPhones over the weekend.
I had the same thought - regrading Log vs Linear. Maybe a better approach would be this scale: instead of 5 bars - Awesome! instead of 4 bars - Better Instead of 3 bars - Cool Instead of 2 bars - Depends (trying to find a better one here) Instead of 1 bar - Eek Instead of 0 bars - Fail Which could be abbreviated A - B - C - D - E - F and maybe even use a plus or minus to indicate either data signal or WiFi as in A+, B- etc.
Well then what is the point of speculating AFTER the press-conference? If you want to get your name in the headlines for your latest bit of make-believe as to what your best guess will be as to the content or outcome of the press release - you have to get while the getting is good. If the result of the press conference is something along the lines of only 1% of units are affected and those will be exchanged or repaired at no charge - then the whole issue *should* fizzle...
especially if it meant that current owners simply traded in their defective unit for a new one - and then the returned units got fix with the new parts or whatever - and were then sold for $50 off as refurb units. but even if it is a hardware fix - I and even if it only affects 100,000 units - i don't think that is a likely scenario. guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out which analyst's dart board was the most accurate this time before making a purchasing...
According to that article a congressman is now involved - so ya now its gonna get fixed - and quick - on the cheap.
The "software" system for the iOS devices IS considered firmware (at least I think it is).
that *sounds* like they intend to electrically isolate the exterior antenna from the internal connector - which sounds to me like you would be permanently limiting the antenna's range until a new and improved internal only solution is devised. If am reading that right (and the report is correct) then it sounds like the fix for sometimes I get lousy reception is to always get lousy reception.
So is the timing of tomorrow's press release far enough away to say see I told ya so - its fixed. Or maybe so close that they can claim it is fixed but not enough people would have had enough time to test it out - essentially resetting the clock on the problem. Would be nice if they (meaning Jobs or whoever will lead the press conference) were to say tomorrow something along the lines of - yes there is a manufacturing problem affecting these serial numbers (insert start...
The press conference that is. Let's hope Apple "holds" the press conference properly. Else MS or Google or Adobe or Verizon might have to tell them they "held" it wrong.
